Don't Forget Me by Tahnja

Currently unavailable for purchase

Acrylic on stretched canvas

7″ × 5″

I’m going through a really emotional time. Lots of memories caving in on me and I’m trying to use that depth of emotion and pour it into my work to help me. Someone once begged me “don’t forget me” and those words haunted my soul for more than 25 yrs…..and it still puts an ache in my heart that is gripping.

In this painting I put that aching love between these two subjects. Both having a heart and a love for one another and never, never wanting to be forgotten. Some things in life can never be forgotten for they are simply far too precious.

The horse I’ve used for reference is a Mustang Stallion by Kent Keller

    I love how he woman’s face and horse’s mane light up in the dark. The darkness is like a divider between the two – they cannot see each other, but yet can never forget each other. Beautiful work Tahnja.

  • Beautiful observations…..yes, though the darkness of life’s separation has veiled them, they are still alight with the memory of one another…..lost and yet found, two souls yet one in heart
